Advanced Clinical, the global clinical research services organisation, have opened a new office in Dublin, creating 20 jobs, with plans to expand to 40 roles over the next five years.
Advanced Clinical is a rapidly growing business that serves the biopharmaceutical and medical device industry across the US, Europe, Asia Pacific and now Ireland. The Dublin office will serve as a strategic hub for clinical research and strategic resourcing services while providing business opportunities due to the proximity of local pharmaceutical, biotech, and medtech businesses. The roles created are expected to be full-time office-based as well as hybrid roles.
Founded in 1988, Advanced Clinical is a privately-held, single owner global clinical research services organization, providing full-service CRO, FSP and Strategic Resourcing solutions for biopharmaceutical and medical device organisations.
Executive Chairman and Founder of Advanced Clinical, Leo Sheridan, said, “we are establishing Dublin as our international headquarters, where we will be supporting our global expansion with leadership and shared services functions, including one of our first leaders Ciarán Troy, Senior Director. Dublin will allow us to support and provide value to our current international customers in both Europe and Asia as well as attract new ones in this high potential market. The ability to attract talent is also really important to us as we increase our workforce and Dublin offers access to a large population of experienced, skilled resources.”
Julie Ross, Chief Executive Officer and President of Advanced Clinical, said, “this is an exciting and important move for Advanced Clinical. Demand for talent and services in the biopharmaceutical and medical devices sector is high. By expanding our presence throughout Europe, we are well placed to assist life-science companies in scaling efficiently and in effectively delivering the right resources at the right time.”
“The diverse life-science community in Ireland provides a great foundation for us to develop a real centre of excellence for Europe. Dublin promises to not only provide access to a large network of skilled talent but it places us in the midst of a concentration of local clients. This means we can deliver CRO, FSP and Strategic Resourcing services throughout Europe and Asia and ensure the quality of our services are the very best of what Advanced Clinical has to offer, namely insightful, informed solutions across the drug development journey.”
Mary Buckley, Interim CEO at IDA Ireland said, “the arrival of Advanced Clinical in Dublin is a welcome addition to Ireland’s vibrant life sciences sector. Ireland is an ideal location in terms of talent and experienced resources from which Advanced Clinical can grow and expand their offering in Europe. I wish them great success here.”
